Leonard Michael Giglio, 81, of Bolton and loving husband of Lorraine (Wilson) Giglio passed away peacefully at home on Friday, July 7, 2017.
Leonard was born on March 25, 1936, oldest son of the late Leonard L. and Alice (DePietro) Giglio. He was a lifelong resident of Bolton and spent most of his life working hard on his family dairy farm, Rockland Farms.
